Something about drugs, and El Paso, and Mexico, and money. Honestly…they kept everything so vague throughout the whole movie I don’t know if I ever quite “figured” it out.

Expectations going in:

Well…if a movie has Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and Michael Fassbender…I assume it is going to be a GREAT movie.


Another reason this movie should have been GREAT…it was written by Cormac McCarthy who wrote All The Pretty HorsesNo Country for Old Men, and The Road. This was his screenwriting debut.

My Take:

1. I had a physical reaction to this movie it was so bad.  

2. Cameron Diaz is a really bad actress. She should stick to romantic comedies. 

When the movie went from bad to worse:

Just wait until you see what Cameron Diaz has sex with. Just wait. Have fun watching that. I am forever scared.

 Should I rent it?

I can’t even fully support this movie as a rental.

Anything good about the movie?

 Cameron Diaz has pet cheetahs. That is kind of cool.

Good date movie?

If a guy took a girl to this movie on a first date…it would be the worst first date ever.

Bottom Line

I am sure you are not going to take me at my word, and go see this movie for the same reason I did…a great cast. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.
